Another backlog – and my 300th tasting note!

After the disappointment of my last go round with this, I extended the steep time to 5 minutes and added a splash of milk. That did it! It tasted exactly like it smelled!

1.5 tsp. leaf at the below parameters, no sweetener because I’ve cut out sugar. It would be great with sugar, I’m sure, but the strawberries and cream was perfectly recreated (and just as delicious) without. Yummy!

Wow, 300! Congrats! And I agree, this tea is best with just a splash of milk and no added sweetener. :)

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
